Gods Of The Culinary World Descend On To Namma Bengaluru!

When Gold Rush Entertainment announced the launch of International Food Festival called World on a Plate with illustrious Master chefs of Australia – George Calombaris, Gary Mehigan and Matt Preston coming to Bangalore, every food lover to those addicted to the TV show just wanted to know how do I get a way to meet these guys and experience a first of its kind event.

A few of us lucky bloggers, were chosen to attend the press conference held on 3rd June 2016 at the JW Marriott. It was a delight as we got to meet with the most influential connoisseurs of global cuisine.

Happiness is written all over my face lol


Kiran Soans, CEO of Gold Rush Entertainment said, “At Gold Rush Entertainment we believe in bringing quality experience to our customers. The weekend promises to be an exhilarating experience as they take fans in Bangalore on an exciting and inspiring culinary journey”.

George Calombaris, who had visited a year ago, said, “I am very excited to be back in India. I love the food here and can’t wait to explore new flavors and cuisine, especially my favorite dish – Jalebis /Vadas. During my last visit, I was thoroughly impressed and excited by the originality of the food and can’t wait to share my experience with foodies in India”.

Gary Mehigan added, “The diversity of India’s food palate is absolutely fascinating. I am looking forward to cooking for our patrons in India and also gorging on some flavorsome dishes. Indians are exposed to so many flavors of cooking; I will consider my job done if I see smiles across faces of guests at the World On a Plate food festival”.

Matt Preston as we all know loves Indian cuisine said,I love a variety of textures and flavors. I am a firm believer that amazing recipes and culinary techniques are held as much by home cooks as great chefs in restaurants. Inspired by the Indian home-style technique, I will be cooking Coorgi style chicken from a small yet significant part closer to Bangalore and I can’t wait to hear the comments and feedback that I can take home with me”.

I would describe myself as someone who loves to eat good food and travel, am polished and classy, yet have that little girl spirit in me and my fashion sense is chic which has to be accompanied with bold statement pieces and fresh accessories. I love to get pampered, totally spoil myself, and why not? xoxo Deena Pinto #skinnygirldiairez
